Nhien Nguyen

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Nhien Nguyen, a loving, humble, generous, and hard-working father, brother and son. He was born on March 2, 1957, and his legacy will be remembered for the number of lives he has impacted and influenced. He is survived by his wife, Huong; a son, Vu; a daughter, Thi; and many grandchildren, siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Nhien was a dedicated family man who always put the needs of others above his own. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family and made it his mission to help them succeed in life. Nhien believed that dreams really do come true if you work hard at it, a lesson he not only shared but practiced throughout his life.

Nhien's gentle spirit and compassionate nature will be dearly missed by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Nhien's memory to the "National Shrine of St. John Neumann."

St. John Neumann is the patron saint of sick children, immigrants and was popular for healing.  

Through his faith and frequent visits to St John Neumann parish, Nhien was able to live an incredible 12 years (after being faced with an initial 6 month lung cancer prognosis). He has been able to enjoy meeting/ knowing his grandkids, creating a home in his favorite city San Diego and he lived and loved every extra piece of time God allowed.

Nhien truly believed in the power of healing through St. John Neumann and wanted to share his power with others. So he built a shrine in Vinh-Long, Vietnam dedicated to the saint.

We thank you for your consideration of a memorial donation to St John Neumann,

As we bid farewell to Nhien Nguyen, let us remember the love, wisdom, and guidance he bestowed upon his family and friends.
